Altruism, poverty, helping, and the inactive suffering Seeker...

My views are:
I had an untimely angry fit yesterday.
But I do still find the following important:
"Lest the above statements be misunderstood, and theosophists be accused of being cold and heartless, it is necessary to recall H. P. Blavatsky's definition of a theosophist:
HE WHO DOES NOT PRACTICE ALTRUISM; HE WHO IS NOT PREPARED TO SHARE HIS LAST MORSEL WITH A WEAKER OR POORER THAN HIMSELF; HE WHO NEGLECTS TO HELP HIS BROTHER MAN, OF WHATEVER RACE, NATION, OR CREED, WHENEVER AND WHEREVER HE MEETS SUFFERING, AND WHO TURNS A DEAF EAR TO THE CRY OF HUMAN MISERY; HE WHO HEARS AN INNOCENT PERSON SLANDERED, WHETHER A BROTHER THEOSOPHIST OR NOT, AND DOES NOT UNDERTAKE HIS DEFENCE AS HE WOULD UNDERTAKE HIS OWN -- IS NO THEOSOPHIST."
